Hi Jordan,


Good question. I'd start by asking yourself why do you want it? Money motivation? Interested in the profession? Career growth opportunity? In today's Millenial culture, companies are turned off by candidates who may be a flight risk. I would go in saying that you want a career that you can be in for the long haul and have the passion to make a difference in their organization. Convey your interest in working with a successful organization that can help nourish your short term and long term goals. Answers like these go a long way.


Thanks!


Mike

Be honest. If it's a starter job, let him/her know that this is your "first" job, but let them know why you want to work there and what you want to do long term. What do you want to learn while there... How you can be of assistance to the company... Where you see yourself within the company in 5-10 years...


If you are interviewing for a position that you have had experience in (ie: working, internship, school) then tell them why you are interested in this profession and what you hope to do (ie: long team goals). Let them know your experiences (ie: projects, etc) and once what you want to learn and how you can help the company.
